The Managing Committee Members, in their meeting held on 23.5.2002, in veiw= of ensuing election for formation of new Government in the State of Goa, r= esolved to demand public assurance from such contesting parties/candidates = by 28th May, 2002 in the interest of Comunidades, on the following:
1. That on formation of the Government in Goa, the undue interference by= the Government in the administration of the Comunidades would be withdrawn= forthwith. 2. That the new Government shall cause the declaration of the institutio= n of Gaonkari/comunidades in goa, a National Heritage of indigenous people/= natives of India, in Goa and shall halt its plunder by every source includi= ng by the acts and deeds of the State. 3. That the new Government shall honour and respect the self-governance = and democratic rights of the Gaonkars/Componentes of the respective Comunid= ades and shall give due recognition to the provisions of Article 652 of the= Code of Comunidades, thereby withdrawing all suo moto so called amendments= carried out by the previous Government to the provisions of Diploma Legisl= ativo No.2070 dated 15.4.1961, after liberation of Goa. Explanation: Article 652 provides forum for self-determination by conventio= n of respective delegates, selected by each Comunidade to decide over the a= mendments, etc. for their good and/or for their own and self progressive go= vernance, from time to time and not by the State. 4. To honour and abide by the age old and long standing contractual obli= gation of the State, towards Comunidades, through the Executive and Judicia= l organs of the State. 5. To denounce all frauds played on Comunidades by the previous Governme= nt since liberation of Goa and cause to restore its legitimate function as = found established under the existing original law. 6. To withdraw entirely the operation of the fraudulently applied provis= ions of G.D.D. Land Revenue Code, 1968, over the land and the villages belo= nging to the respective Comunidades. Explanation: The G.D.D. Land Revenue Code, 1968, was enacted in goa in lin= e with Bombay and Maharastra Land Revenue Code of 1879 and 1966 respectivel= y, during the tenure of the Government under Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party= in Goa. This law in Maharashtra deals with or relates to the land tenures= granted by the State to the members of the public and which could only app= ly in Goa in cases where the land was granted under Decree No.3602 dated 24= =2E11.1917 and such other laws enacted by the State, whereby the State itse= lf functions as landlord by virtue of such tenure contract executed in favo= ur of the concerned citizen on consideration for payment of land revenue to= the concerned Government. It is the then mischievous and fraudulent minde= d bureaucrats that guided the then MGP leaders to cause the survey of the l= and beyond the scope of G.D.D.L.R.C., 1968, with a view of merger in mind o= f Goa with Maharashtra State. This fraud is exploited by every succeeding = Government till date to the detriment of all people in Goa including the De= vasthans and Churches, who do not hold any land from the State under any te= nure as is the case in State of Maharashtra. All the Gaunkars/Componentes and other members of the public may decide to = vote in the forthcoming election according to the public declaration or ass= urance given by the concerned parties contesting and eager to form the next= Government in the State of Goa.
